Hiram: 5 Years + 9 Months (a.k.a. Pretend 6)

March 15, 2015 § Leave a comment


Pretend 6: Since he’s got a summer birthday, Hiram is one of the lucky kids who gets to celebrate his birthday early in kindergarten. “Hiram fest” as his teacher called it, was Friday, March 6 and now Hiram says he’s “Pretend 6.”

I dropped him off that morning which meant I was there when he received his birthday necklace, sticker, prize and, most importantly, his crown. The crown was six inches high but Hiram was 10 inches taller with that thing on his head. Since then, it was Koala’s birthday and you can see Koala got the full treatment too.


Swimming: Hiram knows how to swim! Actually swim! Face in the water. Paddle, paddle. He has said before that he knows how to swim, but this is the first time I’ve seen him do it. Now that I’ve seen it in person, it counts.

Snip, Clip, Cut, Tape: Hiram’s art has transitioned recently to something that requires quite a lot of cutting and taping. In addition to the mask and crown pictured above he’s also been making elaborate pieces that include homemade boxes filled with homemade paper trinkets, paper jewelry and love letters to his family folded up into tiny little bits. We might not have any snow outside but we’ve got the snow effect going on all over the house with his cut up remnants.
